ABOUT THE EVENT

The UK's most prestigious Sportive returns for its 13th year in 2016! The South Wales event will once again start from the picturesque Margam Park, Port Talbot, having moved there successfully in 2012. 2014 saw the introduction of a mammoth Dragon Devil distance, which will once again be part of the offering for 2016.

The Gran Fondo will take in approximately 2,905m of climbing, passing through the beautiful Brecon Beacons and the Medio Fondo approximately 2,060m.

The Dragon Devil will certainly not be for the faint hearted. There will be a very limited numbers of places available for this option, so those who are keen will need to get in quickly. Those lucky enough to get a place will be well rewarded with an incredibly stunning cycling route which will take in the 'Rhigos''Black Mountain' and the 'Devil's Elbow' - the Dragon ride's signature climbs - with the addition of the 'Devil's Staircase', a climb with a 15% gradient and elevation of 480m.

Brand new for 2016 is the Macmillan 100 100km distance! We would like as many people as possible to support our official charity Macmillan Cancer Support to help improve the lives of those affected by cancer. We suggest a minimum fundraising target of £100 or a suggested donation of £50 Macmillan when entering this distance, although fundraising is not an entry requirement.
